So it's down to Romeny then, huh? That's horrible. Really bad. That's the best the GOP can do, Romney?
Very few people here wanted Romney from day one. Now it's all the GOP has and he's going to run against Obama, the best the Democrats can do? Does anybody really believe that either one of those guys is going make a better nation? If you answer that question, please don't do it by saying "Well at least ________ didn't (or isn't) _______." You'd never say that if someone was forcing you to choose between two turds to eat. How about America admits, finally, that the two party systems drags teeth and votes for a third party candidate of their choice?
Nope, most of you will choose between turds instead of refusing the choices.

As an Obama supporter, Romney is the only GOP candidate that I am afraid of. I'm hoping that the right-wing of the GOP revolts and refuses to back Romney, however that is looking less and less likely. Romney gives Obama a tough race and Romney might in fact beat Obama. I'm still hanging in there for Cain/Perry/Bachman....someone else.
Women are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
I still think it's more likely to be Perry than Romney. We'll see what happens.

Romney-Huntsman is the only rational and logical choice.
That's why its won our poll...but will lose in real life. The Tea Party would never allow such an "Obamanation".
Romney and Huntsman are PRESENTED as essentially the same candidate and have much of the same benefits and negatives. Huntsman attracts few new people to the ticket that Romney doesn't already attract. Huntsman detracts in a similar fashion to Romney. Huntsman brings little to a Romney Presidency from a political science stand point.
Its not rational nor logical at all but would instead go against rationality in regards to the VP choices of most of the recent elections.
Obama's VP = White Old guy who was supposedly "stronger" on Foriegn Policy and lots of experience
McCain = Young Woman who was solidly conservative
Kerry = Young charismatic southerner
Bush = Old respected thinker with "gravitas"
Dole = Progressive, more "moderate" republican
H.W. Bush = Young guy to counter the career politician
Dukakis = Southerner, Texan, who was an "elder statesmen" and experienced
Mondale = Female with a lot of fervor behind her hoping to spark emotion
The three in recent times that don't really fit it? H.W. Bush and Lieberman, both picked primarily due to their success in the primary and party urging (Doesn't fit Huntsman). And then Gore, who was extremely abnormal due to the similarities between him and Bill Clinton in terms of political reach.
Huntsman as a pick for Romney would be an illogical, trend bucking, politically stupid choice. And this is from arguably one of the forums biggest Huntsman fans.
My opponent is a liar, and he can not be trusted
This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
